    Hello all,

    Last summer, my son took on a project of building chicken coops for sale. Now, as part of a high-school project, he is doing research on how he could improve his product.

    If you have time, would you take his survey - probably about five to ten minutes.

    And, seriously, no. This isn't a scam or a sales pitch. You can include your name if you're interested, but otherwise can choose to be left alone and anonymous.

    What is he trying to determine by the questions - doesn't seem to be many - age, marital status, owned chickens etc....

    Doens't seem to be any kind of questions about chickens and housing or making a product better??

    At the risk of posting an unwelcome commercial message, here is the text from his flyer. I can send a PDF to anyone interested...

    If you’ve considered chickens, you may be wondering what supplies you need – and where to get them in the Portland area. Of course – that also means building a coop for your chickens – which means finding plans, getting materials, and finding the time to build it.
